We have deployed Salt [Security API Protection Platform] across the entire enterprise to have better visibility around all of our APIs. This is including several different cloud architectures and both in house and 3rd party applications. Salt [Security API Protection Platform] has helped us inventory our APIs and see any attacks and type of data being accessed through these APIs.
  • Easy deployment
  • Excellent visibility into activity on APIs
  • Inventory! It helps you find things you didn't know you had
  • Some customized deployments can be difficult
  • Reporting functionality across the enterprise and not just per environment needs improved
  • Better attack handling options needed
Easy deployment for common cloud API architectures, so it's very easy to at least get visibility into what you have. In house developed apps with a custom infrastructure could be a difficult integration.

We have implemented Salt in our in-house developed applications to identify and protect publicly accessible APIs.
  • Identifies APIs
  • Identifies attacks against the APIs
  • Identifies the type data that is accessible through the APIs
  • Better correctly identify the data that is accessible through the APIs.
It is great at identifying APIs that are being used within your custom developed applications. Once the APIs are identified, it also identifies all of the endpoints associated with those APIs. For a security team that is separate from the DEV team, this is very helpful.

Salt Security API Protection Platform Scorecard Summary

What is Salt Security API Protection Platform?

For API-driven organizations, Salt Security is an API security platform that protects internal, external, and third-party APIs. The Salt C-3A Context-based API Analysis Architecture combines coverage and AI-powered big data to
  • discover APIs and exposed sensitive data - continuous and automatic discovery
  • stop attackers in their tracks - block attackers by integrating with inline devices
  • provide remediation insights - for developers to improve API security posture

According to the vendor the Salt Platform differs from WAFs and API gateways, that cover only some APIs and operate on a narrow, single-transaction perspective, and is designed to understand the full context of APIs and users to provide complete security across the full API lifecycle.

The Salt platform deploys out of band, with no agents, and runs in cloud, on-premise and traditional or container/Kubernetes environments.
